Bugs and Brews: What’s Buzzin’: From Your Backyard to the Backcountry

September 29 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm


What happens when you mix local beers and a fascinating expert bug lecturer? You get the Missoula Butterfly House & Insectarium’s evening lecture series: “Bugs and Brews”! Every month we will have a new expert lecturer discuss a fascinating topic relating to bugs. Some of our past talks have been on Animal Weapons, Pests, Native Bees, Sea Spiders and more! We want to give a huge THANK YOU to our primary sponsor of our unique lecture series: Draught Works!

BUGS & BREWS IS BACK! Join us on September 29th for our first lecture in more than 2 years.

For the past eight years, the Missoula Butterfly House and Insectarium has been compiling insect and arthropod photos as part of our weekly What’s Buzzin’ Report – spotlighting insect and arthropod species currently being found out and about in Montana. Glenn Marangelo (our resident Bug Geek) will take us through some highlights of the past 8 years of our What’s Buzzin’ Report, sharing some of the life stories of the incredible species that have been documented as part of this popular seasonal account.

Tickets are $10 and include two complimentary drinks. Doors open at 6:30pm with time for socialization, beverages (must be 21 and over for alcohol), and the chance to meet some of our Bug Ambassadors and check out the exhibits at the Montana Natural History Center. The lecture will begin at 7:05pm.
